Expert Answer:

The commercial unit of energy is kWh (kilowatthour). We define kilowatt-hour as the amount of energy consumed when an electrical appliance of 1000 watt power rating is used for 1 hour.


1 kWh = 1000 W x 1 hour

          = 1000 W x 3600 s

          = 3.6 x 10J

The energy used in households, industries and commercial establishments are usually expressed in kilowatt hour.
